Amit Shah, Smriti Irani take oath as RS MPs
New Delhi: BJP president Amit Shah on Friday took oath as member of the Rajya Sabha, making his debut in Parliament. His party colleague, Union minister Smriti Iran, too took oath as member of the Upper House.
While Shah took his pledge in Hindi, Irani took hers in Sanskrit. Both the leaders, accompanied by their spouses, were administered the oath in Rajya Sabha Chairman M Venkaiah Naidu's chamber.
The two leaders were elected to the Rajya Sabha from Gujarat earlier this month. Shah sat for a few minutes with his party colleagues in the BJP office in Parliament. After the oath, he and his wife called on BJP veteran leader L K Advani at his residence to seek his blessings, party leaders said.
